If you have ever considered becoming a referee for travel soccer, winter/spring is the time to begin your training to be prepared for the upcoming summer season.
U.S. Soccer mandates all certified referees must be at least 13 years old.
Once trained, you can work league games and tournaments all around Minnesota. YOU set where and when you work!
Good referees are essential to the success of our soccer program. The most important thing that referees do is to ensure that travel games are fun, safe and fair.
As a new referee, you have certain requirements that you need to complete before you take the field for the first time.
There is a need for more certified soccer referees in our area so we strongly encourage those who are interested in more information to visit the MN State Referee Committee website.
If you have questions, reach out to Lissa Staples, Travel Administrator, firstname.lastname@example.org, 320-223-4594.
